Statement of Interest

Unusual timber pavilion probably built as a picturesque tea house and function room for the hotel opposite. It is distinguished by being well set back within its own garden. This pavilion is set in its own gardens and was built by the Temperance Hotel (now the Loirston) which lies immediately opposite, for use as a function room. The pavilion is in a single storey, bungalow style which demonstrates the contemporary influence of Indian architecture, imported by the British at the time of the British Empire. It is currently used as a shop.
